    I have installed homebrew etc. for friends but i would like to know why i always have to connect to the net
    to download IOS51 installer & Wiigator CIOS v7 installer etc. Why can't this software be put onto an SD card
    so i can update friends wii's etc. I also have to connect to net to IOS downgrade and upgrade to 3.2E etc.
    This also would be good to have on a memory card. I have seen a 3.2U fix that had an update on the sd card
    and would like to have 3.2E on a mem card.

    Basically i'd like to have all the following files on my mem card so i dont have to connect to net.

    IOS51 installer-complete files
    Shop Updater files
    Wiigator CIOS v7 files
    IOS downgrader files
    CIOS downgrader files.


    Is this possible or am i barking up the wrong tree?


    Help would be gratefully recieved,
    Steve...

    It's set to make it more legal. Distributing cIOS files is technically illegal, but patchmii code is not, so he used patchmii to download the base IOS, patch it, and install it as 249. It makes it easier to host it on sites like this.

    Gambia, The
    At least WiiGaotr's loader works offline and if you don't have internet at a Wii you don't need the shop udate. So i can't understand your problem.

    Thanks for the replys, in some cases where ive updated my mates wii they have no internet and ive been installing ios51 and updating the shop channel round at my gaff just in case they get internet. But... if i only need to install wiigators CIOS and a wad for the laucher then that'll probably do for now.

    I don't know how to dump whatever off the wii and pack it into a wad?




    Thanx Steve.

    Bassically you use the file system dumper to dump all the items off your wii and then use the wadpacker tool to pack a wad of the titles you wish to use.
